There was a kinda, sorta, good-adjacent jobs report today. It depends on who you ask. The White House says it was awesome.
Experts point to details like the
1.8 million people unable to work last month because their employer closed or lost business. But Joey was happy, so he went out for a victory lap. One during which he tried to convince the American people that not only are we better off than we think we are, but it was all because of his leadership!
BIDEN: "Since I took office, families are carrying less debt, their average savings are up...more Americans feel financially comfortable..."

It needs to be said, I stan his sign language interpreter. The way she non-verbally expresses what we're all feeling can't be understated.
Just to cover some of the basic hits
: gas prices are at record highs, there is a baby formula crisis causing mothers to struggle to feed their babies, inflation is out of control, the stock market has been brutal--people are afraid to check their 401Ks as a result--and everything is more expensive.
But others were angry about the pathetic lies and gaslighting attempts. Politicians can get away with lying about a lot. They can't get away with lying about what you're seeing with your own eyes. Eyes that see your bank account, your gas total, and empty shelves.
You can lie to people about a lot of things, but a bank statement is a statement of fact. You can't convince Americans they're doing better financially than they really are. Your lies won't put gas in their tanks or food in their children's bellies. You just sound like a dick.

This is 100% BULLSHIT! I know more people struggling then ever before in my life! I've watched hardworking families go from middle class to struggling to pay rent &fill up their car with gas. How is it ok to spread these lies straight from the people who are suppose to protect us

All polls lead to a red [place-natural-disaster-here] in November: earthquake, tsunami, volcano, etc. I get that Biden and the people who control him are looking for a game-changer, but this ain't it, Slappy. It's one thing to blame everyone except for you.
Elected officials rarely take responsibility for their shortcomings
. But insulting voters' intelligence like this only makes them want to vote against you harder than before.
